    How to play the Hindenburg

    Well I own this ship which coincidentally has my surname for quite a while now. When I got it first the German cruiser line was the only German one yet in the game. Now I finally want to get gud in tier X matches (lot of experience with tier VIII there and doing well enough) but top tier match meta drives me crazy. Currently I tend to switch between reload and range mod. And of course I know that the AP does sting even BBs though shooting at all seems comes at the price of being the punching bag. How to use this ship right? How do I avoid instadeath in a cruiser with BB detection ranges. I am looking for advice especially after the recent reload buff.

    Does the Smolensk need a nerf.

    I know most people might not agree or do.. but in my view the Smolensk is a little OP to be in this game and the fire chance is too high... having smoke is a bit much..but seriously when I play either Kremlin or other BB's or cruisers I get killed in seconds and its ridicules . Smolensk just needs a nerf and I don't like how the developer released it in such a broken state.
  3. Should I farm XP for the upcoming German/US submarines in their respective tech tree? Or should I stockpile XP for the upcoming subs? What shall I do?

    Which is the best Tier 1 cruiser?

    This may be a bit silly and not essential for most matches, but i wonder in your opinion, which is the best tier 1 cruiser? And why?

    Italian firing range and concealment

    Firing range and detectablity range of Italian cruisers are very very close. They are only a few hundred meters different. Anybody knowing the reason for this???

    Italian pizza and torps

    Italian cruiser players pls stop torping your teammates. I see you have long range torp but come on don't kill your ally. Everyday I got torped once or twice by Italian mafia. Pls stop...
  9. Greetings, captains! As the title says, this topic is about the brand new Semi Armor Piercing(SAP) Shells that got recently introduced to the game with the Italian cruisers. So i got personal missions for Montecuccoli and Trento. After completing the missions, and testing them out i must say this Semi Armor Piercing is pretty interesting. It seems to be the best shell type of choice at near max range against broadside targets. When it penetrates the deck armor of ships, it can deal massive damage. A salvo of SAP dealing almost 9k to a New Mexico at near maximum range This behaviour of the Semi Armor Piercing shells will make Italian cruisers very effective at kiting, and quite dangerous, counting if you can lead your shots properly. Their high shell arc will make leading targets difficult, but if you're familiar with cruisers with high firing arcs such as the Dallas, you will adjust to these cruisers fast. It also is the best choice against some light cruisers, if they're slightly angled, if you cannot guaranteedly citadel them, and DDs of course. But unlike HE, it has a tendency to ricochet on sharp angles. Furthermore, Italian ships will not be able to set ships on fire AT ALL, since the SAP cannot set fires. For those of you who own some of the older premium Italian cruisers, don't worry. Those will keep their regular AP and HE shells accordingly This is my very short analysis of the new Semi Armor Piercing(SAP) shells. I'd like to hear your opinions too! Good luck, and fair seas!
  10. From the first two directives and the daily logins, we could collect 5 regular Italian cruiser containers. It's time to estimate the drop chances to see if you should spend Italian tokens on buying more regular cruiser crates. Please only answer the poll if you have opened your firts five containers, and only give the results for the first five regular containers.

    Zara armor

    When i was in school , I heard it soo many times durning history classes and here on the forum too, that Zara was a heavy cruiser, almost just as well armored as the Des Moines class, yet it feels like a bloody minotaur in world of warships, did wg just changed the "heavy" cruiser into a ligt one? And overall, the mid tier Italian cruisers are just garbage ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  12. Hi all, How are new "Regia Marina" cruisers armed with AP & SAP comparable to "Royal Navy" light cruisers armed with only AP (albeit "special")? Who got the "better deal" regarding guns? Leo "Apollo11" P.S. I am specifically interested in comparison of specific situations when enemy target is well angled...

    Miss Perth - How to play.

    Hello, smoll forum dwellers. As my first topic on this forum, i would like to enquire as to how to play miss perth and what captain builds you recommend? Im also interested in how she compares to other cruisers of her tier and how well she fares both bottom and top tier. And how best to use her modules (just seen that she has creeping smoke). Here is the current build so far, im not sure what to put for the last 10 points seeing as she has HE. Thanks to those who do reply and with great detail. And keep sillies and funnies to a minimum please if possible. Wish you all well. 'w' EDIT: Replays!

    Riddle me this

    Hey guys, I have a thing that irks me greatly. Namely being T9 cruiser gameplay in general and my gameplay in tgem in particular. Here's the issue: T9 in any cruiser line for me is a stinker. It seems like no matter what I do I cannot get a win to save my life and I cannit figure out just what I'm doing wrong. Feel free to look at my stats (I would make screenshots, but I'm typing on the phone), you'll see that in any other tier I do decently, but on T9 my WR is in the red. I cannot figure out why. Is the ships? Am I doing something wrong? I had more than one heartbreakers in T9 cruisers (my overall damage record in a losing game in Ibuki and recently a game in Saint Louis in which I pushed and killed two TX's and killed two other T9's), but it seems that no matter how I do I cannot get a win. Even in the more utilitarian cruisers like Old Baltimore and Buffalo I can't (couldn't) win, even when obliterating literally all the DD's the enemy team had. Halp.
  17. Salve e tutti di nuovo! Come neofita,avevo già iniziato la linea tedesca degli incrociatori (ho quasi sbloccato la Yorck tier 7) e delle corazzate tedesche (sono alla Konig verso la Bayern). Come comandanti,approfittando del reset gratis ho resettato ed ho a disposizione un comandante con 11 skill sulle BB ed uno a 12 sugli incrociatori. Tenuto conto delle attuali e magari anche delle prossime navi delle 2 due linee,come mi consigliate di skillare i comandanti? PS ho anche la Scharnhorst e spero che almeno uno dei 2 setup possa essere adatto anche a lei. Grazie mille di nuovo a chiunque voglia rispondere

    Norway WW2 Cruiser Frøya

    The minelayer HNoMS Frøya was built for the Royal Norwegian Navy by the naval shipyard in Horten during World War I, with yard number 108. A fast ship for her time, she was kept in service until the German invasion of Norway in 1940. At some point between her commissioning and 1940, a 76 mm gun was added to her armaments. Frøya was the first purpose-built minelayer commissioned into the RNoN. At the time the Germans invaded Norway, Frøya was underway from Finnmark to Horten naval base in the Oslofjord, and on 8 April she anchored at Brekstad harbour at Ørland at the mouth of the Trondheimsfjord. Due to bad weather Captain T. Schrøder-Nielsen was reluctant to cross Hustadvika bay on with the ship's full load of mines and had sought shelter at Brekstad overnight. When, on the morning of 9 April, the German assault came, the crew of the Frøya observed the intruding German warships making their way to Trondheim. Trapped in the fjord, the decision was made to move the minelayer into the nearby Stjørnfjord. In the Stjørnfjord Frøya repeatedly came under attack from both land based artillery and Luftwaffe bombers. On 13 April Captain Schrøder-Nielsen decided all hope was lost and, refusing to let his ship fall into German hands, he ordered her scuttled. After removing some equipment and Frøya's load of mines for possible later use the crew of Frøya rammed their ship at great speed ashore at Søtvika, opened the ship's valves and at 12:30 fired explosive charges, demolishing her. Shortly after being scuttled the wreck of Frøya was discovered by Kapitänleutnant Wilhelm Rollmann of the German submarine U-34. As the U-boat captain believed her still to be salvageable for the Norwegians the submarine torpedoed Frøya, blowing the stern off the already wrecked minelayer.

    Update 0.7.6

    In the previous version, the American heavy cruisers underwent an upgrade. Pensacola, New Orleans, and Baltimore stepped down one tier, a newcomer—Buffalo—joined the ranks, and Cleveland jumped up two tiers, moving to the branch of light cruisers. Update 0.7.6 brings four new ships into the light cruisers branch: Tier VI Dallas, Tier VII Helena, Tier IX Seattle, and Tier X Worcester. What's inside?
